Looks like this winter will, unsurprisingly, be the wettest on record, but there are still some differences locally, which I would feel fairly certain are simply based on the further north you were during Desmond the less rain you got.

My records are limited to 8-9yrs and 2015-16 became my wettest before the end of January – however, far more impressive is Appleby in Westmorland.
Previously 2013-14 (498.5) was only the second wettest to 1868-69 [501.7 mm)(records back to 1857) yet again that record was beaten before the end of January.

Newton Rigg - after January has had 490.8 mm, its wettest is 2013-14 (566.8 mm) so just 76 mm needed in February.

I'm guessing that in a week or two there will be a lot of media interest in this and more so as the two wettest have come so close together.
